reblooming irises

reblooming irises

I got a reblooming iris a couple of years ago. I planted it in the fall. It was new, so it didn't bloom in the spring, but it did bloom in the fall. Then, last year, it didn't bloom at all. I don't know much about them, except that I've heard they require fertilization, which I didn't do. Does anyone have any further advice on how to take care of them, and get them to bloom? Do they have any trouble in cooler climates, like Wisconsin?

Very silly question but I’m curious.

I thought this might be a hollyhock, but after seeing a recent post, I think maybe no.
